So I recently built a new PC, with a 32GB SSD and two other Hard Drives, one 160GB and a 750GB. Now that I installed Windows 7 Home Premium on the SSD and very little more programs, (Google Chrome, Firefox, Drivers.) I have no more room on the SSD for anymore programs. Right now I am trying to install more programs but, I am unable to due to the fact that I have no more room on the SSD. I'd like to know how I can get my computer to start installing other programs onto the other drives?

Thanks.

My computer specification:
CPU: Intel i5-2500k
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB
Motherboard: Asrock P67 Pro3 SE
Graphics Card: Sapphire HD 6450 FleX
SSD: 32GB Patriot Torx
HDD #1: 160GB
HDD #2: 750GB

After running the program installer there should be a option for custom install. By selecting custom you should be given the option to choose an install path for the software. About 95% of software gives you this option.
Just be aware that most software also installs any system files needed to run on C:, so there will be more space needed on C. Also you should keep the used capacity of your SSD as low as possible, certainly under 90% used!
